Epicutis is a new medical-grade luxury skincare brand that uses non-toxic, safe, and clean ingredients that are disclosed with total transparency. The brand was created by the team of scientists at Signum Biosciences, a well-respected biopharmaceutical company led by Dr. Jeffry Stock at Princeton University. After supplying innovative ingredients to the skincare industry for several decades, the company decided to launch its own skincare line using compounds and botanical extracts it developed that are mimetics of molecules crucial to cellular regulation and signaling in the body. Signum Biosciences brought in the expertise of formulator Masanori Tamura in Japan, where skincare is at the forefront of innovation, to work with Dr. Jeffry Stock, Professor of Molecular Biology at Princeton University.
The key breakthrough ingredient in Epicutis is TSC, a small molecule that was modified in order for it to yield skin benefits from within, such as reducing inflammation and UVA/UVB damage on the skin. It also possesses antioxidant properties, protects collagen, and balances the skin’s microbiome.
The two products in the collection are the Epicutis Lipid Serum and the Epicutis HYVIA Creme. The Epicutis serum improves skin hydration while buffing up the skin texture and barrier so it feels deeply hydrated 24 hours a day. The cream makes your skin feel velvety and look more saturated with hydration. It is a wonderful sensation to experience.
The Epicutis HYVIA Crème, features HYVIA, a patented chia seed oil extract. HYVIA improves hydration on the cellular level while strengthening the skin’s barrier. This formulation includes non-toxic, active ingredients that act synergistically with the lipid serum. I find that this product is amazing in its power to moisten the skin, changing it so that it feels really buoyant with hydration for hours. You will see a difference immediately in how your skin feels, without the dryness and dullness. The skin’s corneal layer will appear more glassy, as if a deep supply of water was feeding it beneath. All day your skin will look fresher with a finer, more luminous grain.
The salient difference between Epicutis and other technological skincare brands is their commitment to transparency about all their ingredients, something uncommon in the United States where so many controversial ingredients are put into skincare without oversight from the FDA.
“The skincare industry in the United States is not subject to the same regulatory controls as in western Europe or Japan,” said Maxwell Stock, CEO and founder of Signum Biosciences. “Consumers are rarely aware of what is behind the products they use to nourish and protect their skin. Our team of scientists has always been focused on transparency and we are excited to bring this same guarantee to the professional medical world with our best-in-class formulas.”
